Perhaps You Have Had This Problem Too?
I am sharing the following in case it might help someone else....
I have followed just about every diet in the past few years and have reaped few results. I tried low carb/low sugar/low calorie and that didn't work. Then I learned the importance of good fats and oils, and everything paleo/bulletproof, and immersed myself in this way of eating. I wanted to lose weight, but I knew that even if I did not, at least it was a healthy and smart way of eating.
So, last February I started Bulletproof, and have stuck to it faithfully. I had great energy, and didn't gain, but I didn't lose either. "Why?" I wondered. (BTW, I am easily 25 pounds overweight.)
What finally helped? I went to a naturopath/nutritionist who with muscle testing, found that my system is full of fungus! After much discussion, we (she) believes it is residual "crud" left in my system from not only a short time on oral antibiotics for an ear infection, but also a necessary 2-week, 2-hour a day antibiotic drip I had to undergo 5 years ago. I am thankful that in this case, I took the antibiotic; I could have easily lost my arm from a serious infection. However, I should have gone through a complete detox after the antibiotic "did its work".
She told me that often, after this fungal detox, many people find weight begins to drop off; she was right! I have remained on Bulletproof, the pounds are now leaving and I feel great.
One other thing that has helped: I purchased one of those "bullet things" (aptly named I think) that mixes up fruits and veggies, without the waste (ie, no leftover fiber.) I start my day with (for example) organic spinach, ginger, cucumber, kale, avocado, a couple of pieces of frozen fruit, a scoop of Bulletproof Collagen, a tablespoon of Bulletproof MCT, and mix it up. Filling, tasty, energizing, and a nice change from Bulletproof coffee in the morning (which I also love.)
FINALLY I AM SEEING RESULTS! But mostly, I now realized how important it is to DETOX and get residual "stuff" out of your system!!
